Free Yourself from Delusions and Limitations

Consciousness has fallen into two correlative sets of delusions. The first is the delusion of false identity and its sequelae. This triggers the second set of delusions, those that create a false limitation of our intelligence, power, freedom, creativity, and time. We have a responsibility to overcome these false beliefs. Our primary tools in that project are faith, love, reason, and steadfast determination to realize the ultimate Truth.

Divinized Intelligence Needed

Our next retreat is on The Mystery of Evil—and its Overcoming. We will get to the core of the power that supports evil and learn how to pull the plug, so that evil can be finally defeated. But our own consciousness must first be divinized, meaning fully empowered by the Almighty Will of God. If we had not already become disempowered, evil could never have sprouted in the first place. Thus, it is our responsibility to complete this sacred task. It is also our salvation.

The Return to Our True Nature: The Meaning of Maha Shiva Ratri

Consciousness must go through the gateway of language without getting caught on the barbed wire of beliefs or paralyzed by paradox. To reach the Supreme Real, our attention must abandon its identifications with name and form and its attachments to the imaginary and the symbolic. To attain nonduality, the ego and its inherent fear of aloneness must be shed. To reach the Infinite, all concepts produced by the finite mind in its longing for certainty must also be dropped. Only in total Emptiness and surrender will the grace of God be granted.

The Bliss of the Real Belongs to No One

The ego fears the disappearance of its identifications. It clings to its narrative. The narrative produces symptoms in the body and in the field of manifestation that support the repetition of the jouissance of lower death drive—the drive to remain mortal and to suffer from the absence of divine love, sovereignty, freedom, joy, wisdom, and invincible spiritual power. Yet, the way out is so easy, so simple, so effortless, so immediate. When the moment of awakening comes, agony morphs into ecstasy, and all is recognized as perfect.

Mimetic Rivalry is the Root of Evil

This explanation of Rene Girard’s model of social functioning, based on the ego’s uncertainty about what it wants, brings new clarity to our personal difficulties and those in the realm of macropolitics. The discourse describes the chain of effects brought about by coveting the attributes or possessions of a chosen other. These cascade from envy to imitation, to rivalry, and to some level of symptomatic violence. We must become free of scapegoating and being victimized, as well as from all rescue fantasies. There is an easy way out.

How to Be Free of Outer and Inner Distractions

The ego is addicted to its distractions. Because at the core, the ego lacks inherent essence, and thus has subconscious negative self-esteem, it is always running away from—and defending against feeling—its vulnerable and wounded heart. There are ways to overcome this once we recognize the reality of our suffering and its inner cause.

Overcoming the Indoctrination into Nihilism

As one goes ever deeper into one’s inner being, past the ego and its shadow, the paradigm of reality shifts repeatedly as the perception is purified and accurate discernment of the Real comes more into focus. The enigmas presented by the false beliefs we were taught and then, more deeply, by the pairs of opposites that keep the mind split and in internal conflict and confusion, are gradually overcome. The outer becomes recognized as the inner. The Other is reclaimed as the Self. Unity is perceived pervading the multiplicity. The ultimate mystery is at last revealed. Freedom is regained.

Brahmachari:

One whose consciousness has merged with Brahman, the Absolute, and thus has been liberated from all desire, fear, attachment, and material frames of reference. Thus, a Brahmachari naturally lives a life of celibacy, simplicity, and inner solitude.

Satsang:

Meditative meetings in which the highest teachings are shared. Shunyamurti also offers guidance during questions and answers to resolve the most difficult and delicate matters of the heart.

Teleological:

Information, energy, or nonlinear change that occurs as the effect of events that take place in the future and alter the past, which is perceived in the present as non-ordinary phenomena, synchronicities, unpredictable emergent properties or other notable explicate arisings. The source of such forces may also lie beyond chronological time, in higher dimensions of the Real.

The process of non-process:

Since awakening is instantaneous, along with the recognition that one was never really in the dream, but enjoying the creation of the dream, it must be understood that making awakening into a process can only be part of the dream, and has nothing to do with Awakening itself.

The Real:

When we speak of the Real, unless otherwise qualified, we mean the Supreme Real. The Supreme Real does not appear. Appearance is not Real. All that appears is empty of true existence. There are no real things. All that is phenomenal is temporary, dependent, and reducible to a wave function of consciousness. The world does not exist independent of consciousness. There is no matter or material world. All is made of consciousness. Pure consciousness is Presence. It is no-thing, non-objective, not in space or time. All that appears in Presence, or to Presence, is an emanation of Presence, but is not different from That. This is one meaning of nonduality.

The Real is also a term used in Lacanian psychoanalysis. What Lacan means by the Real is that aspect of phenomenal appearance which is overwhelming, traumatic, or impossible. We would call that Real One. It is a relative Real, not Absolute. We add that there is a Real Two, which consists of divine love. Love is not an appearance, but it changes appearance, through recognition of its Source, into a divine manifestation, a projection of God’s sublimely beautiful Mind as infinite fractal holographic cosmos. Real Three is the unchanging Absolute, beyond all conception or image.

Dharma and dharma:

When we use the term Dharma (capitalized), we refer to our dedication to living in accord with the timeless principles of impeccable integrity that keep us in harmony with Nature and our Supernatural Source.

When we use the term without capitalization, we refer to our acceptance of the community’s processes, protocols, and chain of command with the “Haji! Spirit” of going the “extra mile” and working overtime when necessary to make the impossible inevitable, as our unconditional act of surrender to Love.
